This one hour cruise will give you a beautiful view of the outskirts of Luzern and the amazing view of the mountains and landscapes. Well worth the one hour trip. Food available on board. Great photo op.

The boat was clean and nice. There were plenty of areas to sit both inside and outside. There were headsets with multiple languages to hear the tour. It was 1 hour which was perfect, not too long and not too short. We learned about Lucerne,...More
